I wanted to make the front panel of my box look like a chalk board. I used Basic Black card stock and ran my Embossing Buddy over it a few times. The Embossing Buddy is filled with a fine powder that helps keep static down when you are using embossing powders. In this case, I just wanted it for the powdery dust it makes :)
I used the invoice proof sheet that comes with your print order to make this label. Its like a smaller version of the cards. Cute, huh? I cut out a mat with the Apothecary Accents Framelit Die, and tied it to my box with some ribbon.
I made a simple tag with a piece of 3 x 6 card stock, folden in half. I made an apple with a heart punch and a leaf from the Bird Builder punch. The tiny heart button is just for added cuteness :) I wrote a thank you note in the card and tied it to my cello bag. Let me just say a note about cello bags. I love cello bags! I make cookies, cards, tons of small gifts. Having a variety of cello bags on hand is always a good idea for any crafter. Stampin' Up! has a few sizes and I always make sure to have them. They also have craft boxes, another great thing to have on hand. And, here's a hint, there are some new gift giving items in the new catalog, coming out soon!!
Thanks for stopping by!!
